ARVADA ASSOCIATED MODELERS
AMA GOLD LEADER CLUB!
THE LIVE FIELD WEATHER & WEBCAM!
CHECK IT OUT!!!!
We are happy to welcome you to our club website. Arvada Associated Modelers (AAM) received its charter from the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) in 1975 and now have the distinction of being an A.M.A. Gold Leader Club. As we’ve grown and developed over the years we’ve had the help of many enthusiastic and generous people. First and foremost are the members of our club who have worked tirelessly over the years to make this the most significant club in the country! Many of our members have donated goods and services from their own businesses. Many donate their time and effort to build and maintain a world-class flying site. Our members instruct new flyers in the skills of flying R/C aircraft; in what may be described as the best instructional program offered by any club in the U.S.A. Of course there exists a long line of officers and board members who have guided our organization over the past 30 years, keeping the club going and helping new members become active R/C Pilots. As a Gold Leader Club with an membership of over 350 we are one of the largest A.M.A. sanctioned clubs in the nation!
Monthly meetings for all members, their friends, and guests who come to meet our group, gives us the opportunity to educate attendees in flying and building skills, entertain each other in flying related areas, ‘Show and Tell’ fellow club members with our modeling skills, as well as creating an atmosphere of good camaraderie for anyone interested in this great hobby of ours. We also have an annual banquet where we honor our members and sponsors with awards and recognition. The club holds a very large Mall Show each year, which draws tremendous interest from the community as a whole to see what kind of planes our people have constructed.
Community activities and involvement is extremely important to Arvada Associated Modelers and we invite all members, new and old, to support our club activities by joining in the fun. The club participates in the largest parade in the state of Colorado. We also host a very exciting air show each fall in conjunction with the Arvada Harvest Festival festivities. We belong to the ‘Adopt a Highway’ program as a community service for our city, county, and state. Our organization has for many years participated in assisting handicapped children and their counselors in learning to fly through a program we call "Dreams of Flight", held at the Easter Seals Handicamp, located about 40 miles west of our flying field.
We feel that the best way to enjoy our hobby is by belonging to an active organization, that will nurture your desire to become an "Ace in The Sky", assist you in the basics of the game, and assist everyone who wants it with top level aerobatic training. We encourage everyone to visit our new world-class flying field located on State Highway 93, east of the road between 64th Avenue and Leyden Road. Come out to visit, just watch, or ask questions of any of our members. Arvada Associated Modelers Airpark is open 7 days a week from dawn to dusk. Please feel welcome to attend our monthly meetings, held on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 P.M., at the Arvada Presbyterian Church, located atop the hill, at 5592 Independence Street, Arvada, Colorado.
